California RCRA Rules For Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators

California has applied to EPA for final authorization of certain changes to its hazardous waste program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). EPA has reviewed California's application and made the tentative decision that these changes satisfy all requirements needed to qualify for final authorization, and is proposing to authorize the State's changes.

EPA is also proposing that the State's requirements regulating facilities that are conditionally exempt from the federal rules as Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (“CESQGs”) be treated as more stringent than federal requirements, thereby making these provisions federally enforceable.
